is the study behind this. they looked at obama's white house calendar. they took a look at all the dates and where he was, who he met with, as steve just said there was no one on one meeting. a representative from the accountability office had this to say on hannity. >> you can look at any president -- george w. bush, richard nixon, ronald reagan, bill clinton -- you look at their calendar and you can see what's important to them. even if you don't know anything about what was going on at that time, look at that calendar and you'll see what their priorities are. in the case of president obama, if you look at his calendar, there is no evidence whatsoever that is focused or has much interest in health care at all. >> they say that -- they went on to say they have a list of all their meetings. 277 private meetings with 16 other cabinet members. 277 with 16 other cabinetmakers -- cabinetmakers, they pretty much make their own cabinets in the white house. so that just shows a lack of focus, a lack of interest. it remind me of the fact that i remember when james woolsey was the director of the

're right. melanie white saying don't be so naive. the obamas staged theirs for poll approval. i mean, you can say that, but as a fact, come on. and later in the interview, michelle obama said her husband is a man who always keeps his promises, not true. and on the katy perry homage to the geisha, the idea of cultural appropriation is absurd. artists rad s routinely borrow. and i wouldn't think a christian would spend a dime on your book. "killing jesus" has been on the number one slot for nine weeks, i am glad everybody doesn't think the way you do. and oregon, bought a copy of killing jesus for the pastor of my church, he read an excerpt from it in his morning service. well, i appreciate this one. this is a good one, money is tight, we all know that, but christmas is a good time to spend a little money and be generous, here is a website, called retailmenot.com. it is the largest digital coupon site in the usa. in the last 24 hours, about four million coupons were used from that website in stores all across the nation. so you might want to check it out because it can save you substantial
for the american people. >> so that's what the white house is selling that president obama wants what is best for the folks. and i believe that's true in theory, in theory. he does want what's best for the folks. the problem is his vision is running up against reality. the economy is being held back by his tax policies and by obama care mandates on business. there is no question about that that's not what's best. the medical industry in america will suffer from obamacare. it will be harder for working folks to see a doctor and healthcare costs will actually rise because of co-pays and deductible, that's not what's best. barack obama will not believe me and others who see harm to the nation going forward. and that's where we are. and that's the memo. now, for the top story tonight, reaction, joining us from washington, fox news political analyst charles krauthammer. i think it's just theoretical, you know, it's this theoretical world that president obama seems to live in and i'm becoming more and more concerned about that and you say? >> it's also a rhetorical world, theory and rhetoric. it's

that have clearly affected the dynamic of how obama deals with his top advisers in the white house and out. believe that she became known to some in the cabinet as eric's appeals court, because when there were issues of dispute between holder and the staff at times, he was appealing either directly to obama over dinner or some other social occasion or going to valerie. who is the president closest to today, john harris? guest: i would have to speculate that in terms of the intersection between his political and personal life, it is valerie jarrett, who we were just talking about. i do not know that she is the most influential and policy, that we do clearly have ever been's that she is. i am struck by what i read in "politico," elsewhere, about the rising influence of denis mcdonough. he is clearly someone who the president has a personal affinity with. that denisis notable mcdonough's skill has risen as a stack -- staff person. not someone who necessarily had a background as a principal in the way that obama had with rahm emanuel, or even bill daley, obama seems comfortable with people who
that manage large volumes of student loans on behalf of lenders. and also this from the white house. the obama administration is launching a healthcare strategy this month aimed at avoiding enrollment snafus come january and also trying to refocus public attention on the broad benefits of the law. president obama will focus on the benefits of a white house event to date by americans for the white house they have benefited from the overhaul the president will try to remind americans that the health care law is preventing insurance discrimination against those with pre-existing conditions and allowing young people to stay on their parents coverage until age 26. we will cover the events at the white house line starting 2:30 eastern on c-span three. >>> as you walk in there are tables out front with lots of pamphlets not prior to entering the gun show into the pamphlets or how the government is trying to take away the right of guns and governments doing this and obama doing that and obamacare is terrible. so, those were the kind i wanted to talk to because they had the ideas. so i said to them, yo

and what they should be marching on is the white house and why are people going to shed jobs from full-time to part-time? .is protesting fast food in raising the minimum wage. this is part of obama's plan to change the argument away from the complicity of the union and creating a protest or protesting for the wrong reason. protesting the damage that has been part of the movement for themselves. lou: the fast food industry did align itself with oter amnesty advocates because they need three quarters of a million votes and it looks like they got a little too cozy to the wrong people and now may be looking at the prospect of higher wages as a result. >> their evolving coalitions and it's not very hard when you're getting people to show up and basically ask for more money. the downside should be anyone who stops for a second and think about it. it's going to go to fewer jobs and there will be more automation and fast food restaurants and the costs are going to be cut in the very people that are out protesting are thosthat are going to be heard from. lou: what do youake of it? changing coat
i was a little bit confused when he said no one has accused president obama of being inclined to engage in a war without a declaration. i was in court with members of this committee saying exactly that in the conflict and what disturbed us is the white house came back and said the reason that we don't need a declaration of war is the president defines what it is and he's simply saying this isn't a war. when we talk about the danger this is a danger of a different kind. not only did a express language of the constitution, that this administration through these acts and through the large numbers of attacks is returning the world to a state of nature. we are taking dumb criminal international principles that have governed this world that respect the territorial limitations. i spoke to the nato parliamentarians and i told them you will blow the the day that you and force the position that they can take unilateral action when somebody vaporizes somebody in london. >> my time is about to run out three and let me give each of you this question. the president ordered and more a -- and

? >> one problem is the white house continues to boom farther to the left. you saw president obama come out with his big income inequality speech and say we have to hike the minimum wage so forget about what is going on with obamacare we need more income redistribution so he is not promoting the message so they are going to struggle to have their voice heard. this thought that was an important piece. stuart: where do moderate stand on the minimum wage? >>, when you raise the minimum wage job the destroyed. companies can't afford higher wage levels. and the faces and names of people, higher than the first place. stuart: all the news coverage has been about the split among republicans, and we are hearing a big split among democrats and i certainly wasn't. >> this administration has done more to produce higher income inequality. for the poor, the minority population in america, looking at the polls, centrist democrats are saying weekend win on this record and can't win with empty promises. stuart: let me close with a quote from margaret thatcher. they would be happier, if the poor got poorer s
of the debate, james capretta and neera tanden. plus, our sunday panel weighs in on white house efforts to lower expectations for obamacare's online relaunch. then, skepticism over last week's deal with iran that president obama is calling a victory for diplomacy. >> we cannot rule out peaceful solutions to the world's problems. tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it's not the right thing for our security. >> but will the deal halt iran's nuclear ambitions? we'll discuss that and the growing confrontation with china with former cia and nsa director, general michael hayden. and our power player of the week this holiday season is not your typical turkey farmer. >> i'm really happiest when i'm engaged in working and thinking and striving. >> all, right now, on fox news sunday. >> and hello again from fox news in washington. the president promised by the end of november, the problems plaguing healthcare.gov would be fixed. and a new administration report released this morning cites, quote, "dramatic progress." but does that mean the web site to enroll in obamacare is
for lawmakers. the flag of the u.s. capitol remains at half staff in honor of nelson mandela. the white house announced that the president and mr. obama -- and mrs. obama will be joined by presidents carter, clinton, and george w. bush honoring nelson mandela. we're going to begin with your comments and calls on a recent survey. a pew research study indicating power has declined. join in on the conversation, the lines -- you can join us on our social media, send us a tweet or send us an e-mail, journal@c-span.org . or join us on facebook. let's begin with a look at some of the newspapers. front page of "the washington post" has a scene from johannesburg. nelson mandela began the journey from tribal air to revolutionary icon. this from inside "the new york times," -- details from inside "the new york times." there is a new poll we want to draw your attention to. it essentially looks at the role we play in the world. here are some of the details -- support for u.s. global engagement is already nearing historic low and has fallen further. the public thinks that the nation does too much to solve
democratic senators are pushing back. republican senators are pushing back. the white house is saying look, it is a solid achievement with what we've got here. >> maybe, maybe not. you won't know until the six months are up. effectively what obama said, if you like your nuclear weapons program, iran, you can keep it, period. he means it this time. what we have given up in exchange though, we have given up one leverage we which is sanctions, punishment on their economy. we've given that up. even though the president may say oh, if they don't abide by it, we'll reimpose sanctions. he won't be able to because there will be pressure by companies -- bill: senator corker said at height of leverage, we negotiated a deal out of this with not a single centrifuge being dismantled. >> bill, it is crazy. there are 19,000 centrifuges spinning in iran. there are twice as many centrifuges in iran than starbucks in america. not one will turn down. not one turn off. they may give up some enriched-uranium. they have the ability to make more tomorrow, in six months. so, yeah it is good we're talking to iran?
